Dr. Judith’s Saturday Blog – Be A Doer … Not a Dreamer

                                                                Avoid the RTP Factor 

It’s easy to convince yourself that your book is ready to publish, before it is.

It’s easy to upload a book to the many publishing platforms … from the free to fee.

Oh-Oh …

Your cover may not be quite right.

Your back cover copy may need another rewrite.

Your editing needs another round.

You haven’t created or finished your website.

You haven’t put in the work to start building your influence on social media.

You haven’t put into plan a Plan to support the book the moment it is available for purchase.

The smart author doesn’t embrace the RTF factor … the desire to Rush to Publish.

Finish your book … a book that you will have no regrets about in it’s copy, in it’s presentation.
Have your infrastructure in place so you are findable.

Then publish.
